Gemma-Rose started taking photographs as a teenager growing up in a small country town. She enrolled in Photography in because it was the ‘cool’ subject that allowed you to legitimately disappear off the school grounds (to do whatever it is that teenagers in small country towns do). She fell in love with photography along the way and ended up with her own key to the school darkroom.
Fast forward sixteen years and she has just published her first book Red Light Dark Room; Sex, lives & stereotypes and is in the process of completing a PhD at the University of Queensland. She also has a dog called Rufus, and considers his inability to walk on a lead one of her greatest failures.
